Hi there... Does anyone know what make external flash will work best for the FZ50??

The Panasonic FL50 is a dedicated flash, but is so darn expensive that it's almost the

price of the camera... Looking for a second les exspensive flash...:arrow:

I just received the FL50 last week for my FZ50, It's an awesome flash with the FZ50 but your right it's expensive. I paid once the rebate comes back $319.00. It would be a more atractive purchase under 300 but I didnt want to be left wanting... I guess I go under the age old saying "A cheap tool is an expensive tool".

Conclusion: $319 only hurt till I took my first few shots and saw the results. WOW! worth every penny.:|

The Olympus Flash Units will work TTL with the FZ-50. The high-end unit, the FL-50, is expensive, but there's the less powerful FL-36, but it does still have the tilting head to bounce flash. Last time I checked it was under $200, and then there's the really small FL-20, with an equally smaller power punch. Check those two out.
